The Eye on the Reef App can be used to capture, submit and share your sightings, photographs and video recordings with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and others. It can also be used an educational tool to find out more about your favourite Great Barrier Reef creatures.
The Great Barrier Reef is a vast and complex ecosystem. Eye on the Reef helps build knowledge about marine species diversity, abundance, habitat and distribution.
The more people report their sightings, the more knowledge will be contributed to science, management and the protection of this natural wonder.
Reef visitors have used Eye on the Reef to record thousands of sightings of humpback whales, dwarf minke whales, dugongs, dolphins, whale sharks, birds, sea turtles, and many more Reef creatures.
Selected sightings will be displayed on the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority website and Facebook page, to show the world a sample of the wonderful experiences that the Great Barrier Reef can offer visitors.
Due to the IMPORTANT nature of sightings of sick, injured or dead animals please also report to 24hr Ph: 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625).
